Asuka finally won the SmackDown Women's Championship at the TLC pay-per-view on Sunday after surviving a hellacious triple threat TLC match with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. This richly deserved title win closes out what has been an up and down year for the Japanese star.
She began 2018 by winning a thrilling inaugural women's Royal Rumble match, before challenging the blue brand's champion Charlotte at WrestleMania. A shock loss at the Grandest Stage of Them All brought her undefeated streak at a halt at a whopping 914 days.
Following the loss, Asuka's WWE career went slightly off the rails; she followed it up with another loss against The IIconics in a tag match, and multiple PPV defeats to Carmella thanks to the interference of James Ellsworth.
However, she returned to form by winning the SmackDown battle royal and qualifying for the title match at TLC. The rest is history...
Nevertheless, just how much do you know about the Empress of Tomorrow? Who did she beat to become NXT Women's Champion? How long was her record-breaking reign as champ? Who is her dream WrestleMania opponent?!
